The idea of starting a college in North Karnataka was floated as early as 1876. The real beginning of the endeavors however was not made till the year 1909. The Karnatak College Association was formed with Late Shri.R.B.Rodda as Chairman. Later due to efforts of Late Shri.Diwan Bahadur Srinivas Rao Rodda, Late Shri Rao Bahadur Rudragouda Artal and Late Shri.M.B.Choubal, the foundation stone of Karnatak College was laid on 20th June 1917 by the then Governor of Bombay (earstwhile Bombay Province). Karnatak College was established with an intention of providing something more than a mere machine for grinding our graduates but a place where the young men and women will learn to be manly, athletic, self reliant and loyal citizens of the great country to which they have the honor to belong. After the establishment of Karnatak University at Dharwad, in 1958, it took over the Karnatak College to run it as a Model College. Later, the Karnatak College was bifurcated into two sister colleges as .Karnatak Arts College. and .Karnatak Science College. sharing a common campus and other campus amenities for administrative purpose. Late Sir.Siddappa.Kambli played a vital role in establishing the science wing in Karnatak College. Late Dr.G.S.Paramasivaiah, a student of the Nobel-laureate Sir.C.V.Raman, was the first Principal of the Karnatak Science College.
